I am trying to get back to my usual blogging habits. It helps me stay on track and gives me a good outlet for my emotions. Some, or most I don't want to share with my Facebook or Tumblr friends, but I still need to get them off my chest so to speak.
Now, I really don't feel like writing today. But since my "goal" (which I use loosely, as it's not a goal goal, ya know?) is to write twice a week.
So here I am, writing. The keto flu is mostly over. For the few days my body was transitioning back into ketosis, my headache turned into a migraine. But now it's back to a dull roar. Just there enough to affect my daily life, but not so much that I am bed ridden.
I got back into keto extremely quick, after only two days of low/no carbs. I forget how quick it can be if you have been in keto for any amount of time before. It's like your body remembers and you don't have to go through the whole week of keto flu.
I still don't feel great, so it's hard to fine energy to good or make something to eat. I am really just living on bulletproof drinks and cheese. But cheese is good, right? Don't answer that.
I picked up a couple of cookbooks from a few of my favorite keto bloggers. The Everyday Keto Kitchen by Carolyn Ketchum is by far my favorite. I highly recommend this cookbook. If you are looking for fancier stuff Maria Emmerich's Keto Comfort Foods and Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking are good as well. I can't wait until I feel well enough to make some yummy stuff!
Still not willingly to workout, or try to walk for very long. I am hoping to try a walk on Friday and see how it goes. Last time I took a walk, I was out for the entire weekend because the headache was so bad.
I have still lost a bit of weight already, which always happens for me when I first get into Keto.
I really don't have any timed goals, but I have a friend that has left for an oversees trip for a while. He's not sure how long he will be over there, but it could be 6 month or a year. I think it would be funny to lose my weight before he gets back to freak him out. He has seen my at some of my smallest weight too.
Well besides that I have been having a lot of weird emotions going on. Some because of the friend I mention above. Some because not being able to work out has made my anxiety and "manic rage" episodes worse. Hopefully keto will help until I can get back into working out.
I really want to do some kind of martial art too. I was gunning for Krav Maga, but there isn't a studio close to where I live. I mean, there is one not to far, it's doable, but I am wanting something closer.
Oh well. That's it for me! Thanks to everyone that commented on my last blog. Have a wonderful day and I hope you are keeping the Spark alive!
